Our counselors will be holding an information night to get our current juniors ready for their senior year. This will include information about class registration for 2019-2020, timeline of steps to prepare for applying to college, SAT/ACT plans, and many other senior year events. This is an important night to attend for all junior parents and students.


PSAT 9 and 10

On Tuesday, February 26th we will use part of the school day to test 100 of our freshmen and all of our sophomores with the Preliminary SAT (PSAT 9 and 10). The PSAT can serve several purposes. It is a practice test to the SAT, provides the school with data to help students determine Advanced Placement (AP) readiness, and it can help students determine career interests.


The window for 9th grade students to register for the PSAT is open until January 30th, or until the first 100 students register. The Google Form will be time stamped as they are completed. Students who would like to sign up should follow the steps below.



  1. Click and complete this Google Form.
  2. Once sign-ups are closed a staff member will reach out and place the student on a wait list.
  3. Royal HS will be fronting the costs of the exams for the students who register. There are 100 exams available.



AERIES PORTAL

Logging in and monitoring your student's grades can all be done from the Aeries portal. The importance of this cannot be communicated enough. Parents and students will be able to better partner with the teachers by monitoring students' grades, attendance, and other important information within Aeries.

THIS WEEK: Birmingham–Southern College

Click here for Admissions Info

Enrollment: 1,337

Acceptance Rate: 54%


DETAILS: BSC is now striving to prepare students for all aspects of the modern world, with high-tech facilities and a more global curriculum. More than half the student body participates in community service through the Bunting Center for Engaged Study and Community Action, and attentive faculty add to a sense of commitment to both personal and community growth. A junior says BSC is a good choice for those students who “want to spend four years preparing, maturing, and challenging their minds so that they can make a difference in the world.”


The Explorations general education curriculum is designed to help students develop effective communication and problem-solving skills, connect with their social and political world, and direct their own learning. It comprises 32 units across several disciplines, including fine and performing arts, social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities, as well as three global and local citizenship courses. All freshmen take an introductory first-year seminar, and all seniors complete a capstone experience and a public presentation of their work. The Explorations term, a four-week term between the fall and spring semesters, allows students to explore new areas of study, from cooking lessons to travel in China.


The courses at BSC are “somewhat competitive” and “challenging but not impossible,” according to one senior. Each student is assigned a faculty member who serves as his or her academic advisor from freshman convocation to graduation, an arrangement that students praise for its effectiveness. Equal praise goes out to faculty in the classrooms, where 65 percent of classes have fewer than 20 students. An education major says professors “love to challenge our beliefs and ideas by making us defend what we think.” The honors program allows 25 exceptional first-year students to take small seminars with one or more professors. The Krulak Institute coordinates opportunities for experiential learning, such as service-learning projects, study abroad programs, and an entrepreneurial scholars program.

BSC Student Perspective: “Students want to spend four years preparing, maturing, and challenging their minds so that they can make a difference in the world."
